Yeah. Things aren't as 'live' around here this time of year. Everything is brown, brittle and freezing.

The puzzling table is lively though...

So...live things...ok, here is a beautiful running pal, and her person (who is almost as fun to run with)


But prattling...ok, here goes.

Kali (the one with the black nose) is very nearly evidence that dogs have a low sense of humour. She likes sticks, especially big, ungainly sticks, and will take seeming joy in running at someone, and hitting them in the back of the knees with her stick.

Got chomped on by one of three dogs being walked by one man. Broke the skin. Only needed anti-bac ointment. Haven't been bit like that for over 50 years.

Lessons learned:
- Him: Keep fucking dogs farther away then length of your dogs' leashes
- Me: Stand still while being farther away than length of dogs' leashes as dog walker passes by.

Dog-owners have changed over the years. It used to be considered impolite for a dogs handler to allow this kind of thing.

As things are now, I have to ask, did you agree to pay for counseling for the traumatized pup?

I saw nature. You non-runners would be bored with the details of how I got there, but it's pretty. Photos from yesterday.

One chilly autumn day, years ago, I took two beautiful and loved women out with me on this trail. We decided to double the day, and walk it back. I asked them to sit on this rock, and photographed them doing it. To this day it is one of my fondest memories of them. No good reason for that, either. The photograph wasn't all that good (though nice enough)

Spoiler


Before that, I climbed this hill the hard way, then the easy way, to get a look at Jackfish Lake. The newly forming ice has broken, leaking a little. Not to worry - this is the lake no-one is supposed to be out on.

Spoiler


Finally, and perhaps a bit less beautifully, here is a failure.

My fault - this crop had to be aborted, and I'll have to reset. This is still ok, but I wasn't going to throw good electricity after bad.

Not a total loss, as the main growth took place out in the greenhouse, but splitting the load between sunshine and electric may take a little more 'dialing in'.

It sucks getting into that confrontation. To take this a bit more seriously...

I use several interventions, pre-planned, to deal with loose or aggressive dogs.

Voice (order owner to take control / order dog to stop)
Dog treats (self-explanitory)
Water bottle (squirt the fucker)
Offer a piece for biting (left arm preferred)
'Coyote spray' (last resort)

I once tried screaming like a banshee while whirling my quite large purse around my head like a sanity-challenged baseball pitcher winding up.

That worked. It thoroughly confused the crouched and snarling GS long enough for the owner to hear the earsplitting ruckus and come running.

Humans, even dog-owners-on-duty, sometimes freeze in emergencies. This is why I include 'order the owner to take control' in my plan. It really CAN help.

I've lost my coyote spray at the moment. It doesn't work out when frozen anyway, or so I think.

I'll bring along a security detail, and medic. Should be no problem.

Seriously, two new run-friends coming, one is a young, fit army man who sometimes brings his adorable 3-year-old, the other is a nursing student - I am stunningly well-attended for a tubby old man going jogging.

I stay as far away from stranger's dogs as I can. I was bitten rather badly twice as a small child and developed a lack of trust for strange dogs as a result. So, I think that dog owners need to follow the law and keep their dogs safely on a leash if they are not behind a fence on the owner's property.

I would have handled it differently. The owner of the barking, snarling and attacking German Shepherd would have heard the gun shot.

4:35 pm and the sun is just touching the treetops as it sets.

Otoh, it is peculiarly beautiful light, Nov. through Dec. The angle at the end of the day is such that the light is very yellow and the sky has that burnt orange horizon band. Everything is lit from the side, it's very different from summer sunlight. Tree branches are edged in pale orange and dark grey in the shade.

The privet hedges put in by the council when they built the socialist housing in the 1940s round our kids' school support a remnant population of what was once such a common bird it was a waste of time putting out scraps on the old bird table. House sparrows or in the old dialect, spodgers.

Twitter luminary @MooseAllain started a twitter thread a couple of years back on various regional dialect names for sparrows. I even contributed as my Mum's family referred to them as "spriggers", but earlier this year I deleted all my Twitter history for reasons I can no longer explain. He had a storify (thread of tweets) about it but that no longer seems to be accessible either.

The sparrow names twitter thread followed on 1 he did on woodlice, or slaters / slateybugs which is what I knew them as

A friend was running the trail the other day, and saw eyes staring at her from the bush. She shied away, going back the way she had come, and i think I saw her pursuer later that day.

Last week, a flock of mergansers settled on the lake for a rest during migration, about 30 birds.

And yesterday afternoon I got to watch a pair of otters having a grand time playing together in the lake. They made little raspy squeaky vocalisations while rolling in the water, swimming under each other, and sometimes wrestling for a few seconds.

These are river otters, and this pair is on the large end of the scale:

Quote:
Total body length is about 1.5m (4.5-5feet) long with the tail accounting for nearly one-half of that length. Weighing up to 15kg (33 pounds), river otters are very playful, often seen sliding on mudbanks or snowbanks while vocalizing an assortment of sounds ranging from chirps to low grunts and growls.

Talking to my sister recently, she listed the birds currently using her winter feeders - juncos, purple finches, gold finches, several kinds of sparrow, chickadees, nuthatches, blue jays, blackbirds, and more. She has an apple tree in her front yard that backs into a thick mature lilac hedge, which backs into a grove of hardwood trees, and there are large fields and conifer woods nearby. It's great habitat for a lot of birds I rarely see in winter - where I am is far less inviting for small seed eating birds. I'm a li'l bit jealous.

I mostly see jays, crows, and seagulls in winter.

Yeah, she lives in Cape Breton and has a bit of the old family property. She's spent 25+ years nurturing and shaping a semi-wild sanctuary for wild things, moving trees to more beneficial spots, tending little clearings, protecting wild things and making natural homes for them, like convenient brush piles, sheltered spots, sunny openings, winding paths, little gardens...

So she gets a lot of birds, chipmunks, flying squirrels, bunnies, foxes, and of course raccoons and other slightly less desireable visitors like coyotes and rats. But those are a minority. Her trees are always full of birds, especially in spring, and she gets loads more butterflies than I do.
